2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Contours Options 3-Wheeler Stroller #HGG

A stroller packed with loads of necessary features for both mama and tot with a super reasonable price can be found in the Contours® Options® 3-Wheeler Stroller.  When I pulled it out of the box it was pretty large (almost 28 lbs total) and took some time to assemble.  I started and Hubs took sweet!  The instructions were pretty clear and we were ready to roll within 20 minutes.  

When having an infant a stroller with a carseat adapter is pretty darn handy.  If your tot is sleeping in his carseat when you arrive at your destination it's much easier to pop out the entire seat and place on the stroller than unstrapping, waking and placing into the stroller seat.  The Contours Options 3 Wheeler Stroller comes standard with an infant carseat adapter that accomodates the following seats:

Britax® B-Safe®
Graco® Safe Seat
Britax® Chaperone
Graco® SnugRide® Infant
Chicco® KeyFit

Mason uses the Maxi Cosi Mico carseat and it fit right on top of the Contours adapter.  The strap is placed over the carseat and you are ready to roll.  You can see from the photos that the storage basket is easily accessible when using the infant carseat.  The space is HUGE and you can easily fit a diaper bag, blanket, snack bag, shopping bags, etc. 

It was Kenzie's turn (as usual) to take a ride in the Contours Options stroller.  The seat is lightweight and reversible.  It can be changed by an easily push of the buttons on either side of the frame.  It's so easy that I can even change the direction with Kenzie sitting in the seat since she's only around 26 pounds.  I do have to note that when parent facing, it seems that your baby is far away.  However, it allows for easier handling once your child becomes a toddler.      

The seat reclines from 90 degrees to 45 degrees to full recline so your little one can easily take a nap in comfort while you are out and about.  There is a removable infant head rest with soft micro-fleece fabric so Mason can have support when he sits in this seat.  The height adjustable canopy has a peek in window so when your little one is facing the world you can check on him/her easily.   I love this feature to see if Kenzie has fallen asleep :)

One of my favorite features of the Contours Options stroller is the parent tray with its deep cup holders (two) and middle area for storing phone, snacks, etc.  This is sturdy and super convenient because each parent can have a drink or you can even put a baby bottle on one side.  I wish the middle area had some sort of cover (in case you wanted to store money) but it's not a breaking point.  I wanted to note that there is also a cupholder that fits on the seat so your little one can have their bottle/cup right within their reach.  Our cup holder was so popular out of the box that it is currently being used in Kenzie's playhouse.  I need to take it back while she isn't looking.

Let's discuss one of the most important features of a good stroller - the ride.  There are 12" rear never-flat wheels and the 8" front single-swivel wheel.  The stroller handles pavement, grass, gravel and dirt pretty well.  Kenzie and Mason both are comfortable and enjoy the ride without any complaint or crying.  Major plus!  This stroller can easily move through crowds in shopping plazas as well as doorways.  It also folds easily by lifting up on the trigger on the sidebar and the upright stand is fantastic.  Your stroller stays clean (a major annoyance I have when the canopy gets dirty from the ground).  

If you want a stroller that can be used from birth to 50 lbs and packed full of must have functions with a price easy on your wallet, pick up the Contours Options 3 Wheeler Stroller and you or your gift recipient won't be disappointed.  

Buy It:  You can purchase the Contours Options 3-Wheeler Stroller for $169.99.
